Scheduling an initial dental exam and teeth cleaning every six months will help maintain great oral health and keep your smile bright!
Our Comprehensive Dental Exam
Your dentist will perform a comprehensive exam during your initial dental visit. This initial oral exam includes:
- Visual examination
- Diagnostic X-rays
- Teeth cleaning
- Periodontal probing
- Treatment recommendations
Routine Dental Checkups
Regular checkups every 6 months are good for both maintaining good oral health and preventing disease from forming or developing.
During your checkup exam, your hygienist will perform the following:
- Screen for oral cancer: Identify mouth cancer in the early stages
- Evaluate gum disease: Look for signs of periodontal disease
- Check for cavities and tooth decay
- Examine existing restorations
Professional Dental Cleaning
Brushing and flossing regularly are necessary for healthy teeth and to prevent bad breath. Regular teeth cleaning from your hygienist will ensure your teeth are cleaned in even the hardest-to-reach areas.
As part of the teeth cleaning at your dental exam, your hygienist will:
- Remove tartar
- Remove plaque
- Polish your teeth
Our experienced dental hygienists will also take panoramic X-rays to examine your anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth. In addition, we’ll conduct bite-wing X-rays to determine proximal decay and diagnosis.
Dental insurance policies typically offer some type of coverage for routine exams and teeth cleaning. While every plan varies, Hamby Family Dental Center aims at being the friendliest dental team and making your visit as easy as possible. We know that finding a dentist that accepts insurance and offers financing is important to you. That’s why we work with many different insurers.
